Parrot & Pet Bird & Parrot Food Feeding our pet birds (or “fids” as we like to call them) the right foods is important for their health. A balanced diet based on sound bird nutrition recommendations is the key. Balancing a parrot's diet from the beginning will prevent many health and behavior problems. But it's never too late to get your pet bird on a sound nutritional footing. It is something you will want to do since an unbalanced diet is the main cause of disease and early death in pet birds. Malnutrition is a human-made disease. Fortunately, it is also preventable.
Feed your birds a varied diet with the basis being a good pelleted diet. Feed seeds sparingly and/or as a treat. Feed fresh fruits & veggies whenever possible – apples, bananas, squash, fresh corn on the cob, carrots, mustard greens, peppers, etc. (note: never feed avocado or chocolate!).
Birds also love warm, cooked foods too…so be sure to check out our section of “Cook n Serve” foods!
